New in Legl: Payment Plans


59% of lawyers report dealing with late payments on a regular basis. To mitigate this administrative burden that impacts on cash flow, Legl’s new Payment Plans automate the scheduling, notification, and collection of payments, creating more flexible and affordable payment terms at no extra cost.

With the average UK law firm writing off 14% of what is billed each year, cash reserves are under acute pressure with slower economic growth. Consumer and business clients alike are facing finance challenges, and it’s critical that your law firm leverages technology to recover monies as quickly as possible, to create more certainty around payment times, and to improve forecasting.

New Payment Plans in Legl make billing easier with scheduled instalment payments, and enable you to expand your pool of clients with affordable, flexible payment options. . Mitigate risks caused by overdue invoices, and reduce write-off at your firm with stronger credit control. Enable your law firm to better manage cash flow all whilst attracting and winning new clients by offering flexible, affordable, digital payment plans.

How do Payment Plans work?

Automate your core finance processes and make it easier for your teams to bill your clients.

Create a new payment plan in a couple of clicks from your Legl dashboard, and split a larger payment into instalments that are automatically scheduled, communicated to your client and debited on the agreed time frame.

All instalments are debited automatically without requiring additional client authorisation with notifications and reporting for you and your clients. Clear information is automatically sent to your client about the agreed payment schedule to ensure payment terms are simple and transparent. Payment Plans work with any card payment and are available to you with your existing Legl setup.

Payment Plans work seamlessly with your other finance tools in Legl’s platform, and in a click of a button you can select whether to send your client a single, one-off request for the full sum, or you can select to set up a Payment Plan with agreed monthly instalments. From your Legl dashboard you get real-time updates, and can easily track your key metrics from the Insights dashboards.
